Princess Marie Christine (Kaethe Von Nagy) doesn't want to marry the man picked out for her by her parents. Likewise, aristocrat Lt. Von Conradi (Willy Fritsch) balks at the notion of an arranged marriage. Now the scenes shifts to a costume ball: Princess Marie pretends to be a humble manicurist, while the Lieutenant poses as a delicatessen clerk. They fall in love -- and after this, nothing quite turns out as expected. Co-scripted by no less than Billy Wilder, Ihre Hoheit Befielhlt (Her Majesty Commands) was remade as the 1933 Janet Gaynor musical Adorable.
